Default AR Wood and Nickel

Here is the gun that inspired me. My Sig P220 with factory nickel accents.




I decide to make an AR to match my 220 and I sent off these parts to get plated (mat finish)




And the end result

That's really nice, man. I'm surprised we don't see more of this kind of customization.

Great job.

It's like pure, raw, sweaty passion. Right now, my vote for favorite set up goes straight to your pair.

Thanks!

I do shoot them and both shoot very well.

The AR is a Piston upper on a Rock River lower.

That is freakin beautiful! The AR looks much less "dainty".
